Researchers at North Carolina State University ‘dope’ microscopic diamonds with nitrogen ions to create stable qubits

Diamonds are among the most expensive gems in the world, but they could also serve as a building block for quantum computers.

Because diamonds are structurally sound, researchers believe they could eliminate some of the challenges involved in making stable quantum computers.

The potential of quantum computers is enormous — they could bring massive gains in computational power and ultimately replace today’s PCs and servers. Continue reading Diamonds could be building blocks for quantum computers
